The PARS III 6x6 Armoured Fire Support Vehicle, featuring a maximum combat weight of 25,000 kg and powered by a robust diesel engine, has been introduced to the defense market. Capable of reaching top speeds of 100 km/h, this vehicle can maneuver challenging terrains including 60% vertical and 30% side slopes, and is capable of climbing obstacles up to 0.7 meters high and crossing trenches 1.75 meters wide.

The PARS III 6x6 boasts a balanced design with an evenly distributed axle load, which aids in smooth navigation on various terrains, maintaining control at high speeds with short braking distances. Each axle is fitted with lockable differentials, and the central tire inflation system allows for on-the-fly pressure adjustments to adapt to changing ground conditions.

A standout feature of this vehicle is its power pack architecture, designed for rapid removal and installation — under 60 minutes — facilitating field maintenance and engine replacements. The vehicle also features a fully independent hydropneumatic suspension system, providing exceptional handling capabilities on both country terrains and paved roads. The small turning radius, courtesy of the first and third axle steering system, is the best in its class.

The vehicle's safety features are top-notch, with advanced systems such as axle lock on the third axle at high speeds, an ABS system, and an engine brake. It can carry up to nine personnel along with their equipment, ensuring a high payload capacity and driving comfort. The range of the vehicle exceeds 800 km, supported by explosion- and puncture-resistant fuel tanks, and includes a spare tank under the armour for emergencies.

Protection is a paramount feature with the PARS III 6x6, which offers modular armour systems that can be tailored for specific threat levels. The vehicle's design includes enhanced underbelly structures and mine-protected seating for superior defense against mines.

Additionally, the vehicle comes equipped with a state-of-the-art air conditioning system capable of maintaining an indoor temperature of +25°C even in tropical climates. The PARS III 6x6 is armed with a 30mm TEBER-II Remote Controlled Turret (RCT), designed by FNSS, which can be upgraded to a 40mm barrel if necessary. This turret supports various armaments and missile systems capable of engaging threats over four kilometers away, and also features an independent sighting system for enhanced combat capabilities.

The introduction of the PARS III 6x6 Armoured Fire Support Vehicle marks a significant advancement in armoured vehicle technology, combining heavy-duty protection with agile combat features for modern warfare.
